A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I share my passion for making hand made greeting cards. So - why "Always with a Heart"? Well this is for two reasons. Firstly, it is because every card I produce carries a heart on it somewhere. This can be big and bold or small and almost hidden - the fun sometimes is just trying to find it! Secondly it is because I put my heart into everything I produce. I hope that any visitors enjoy seeing what I post. If you drop by then please leave me a comment so that I know you called. It would be nice to know that you have found my heart in what I do.

Hi Everyone

Hope you have had a good day.

The weather has been much kinder here today .. . I hope is has been where you live too.

I think my little creation today is going to be a world record for me.

I have just made this, posted it here and am shortly going to be delivering it (along with a couple of Christmas presents) to a very special lady who is going away for Christmas next week.   So we need to catch up with her good and early!!

Has there ever been such a quick turn around in the House of Hearts?  I think not LOL!!!

So here is my world record Christmas card:

This used:

Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat
Cuttlebug Die:  Snowflake
Josy Rose:  Nail Heads
Glamour Dust
Ribbon, dinky bit of cord and button from the Stash Box
My trusty sewing machine

So I am off now to wrap my first two presents of Christmas so I can deliver them alongside my world record card.

Oh I do hope I can get ahead of myself this Christmas .. .. that would be a world first too!!

Have a good evening everyone

Lots of lovely, lovely makes: Some of them simple, some of them more intricate; all of them lovely! One of your makes that really stood out for me was the one sending Christmas love with a patchwork heart! Such a clever idea and so beautifully done. Hope not to leave it so long til my next visit! Hugs, Lesley

Wow Jules that is such a beautiful card, can I lift this idea? I am so stuck for my own christmas cards this year and this looks so elegant. I haven't made any snippets lately it's been mad here with card orders and the usual ones as well. No complaints as it all helps with the stash money.
